Coming in late, as usual...

I figure I can't change anybody else, and that my own responsibility is merely to be the best self that I can be, moment to moment. On the forum, and elsewhere. Trouble is, I'm not always very good at it.

When this place is temporarily filled with anger and malice, I just ignore the threads at the center of the maelstrom. The rest of the community I have found to be generous, good-humored, smart, and articulate, and usually silent. When the crazies are bashing each other, I try to remember the backdrop of kind, knowledgable people smiling quietly on the sidelines.

Hmmmmm... seems I find myself agreeing with the skipster.

Lighten up, you sanctimonious clown!

Anarchist huh? Mutualist, collectivist or individualist?

Well, that's about it, eh? Another thread gone to shit. And, the outstanding result? You are a card carrying member of this little band of misfits. At least, if my standing as Forum Prime Minister still stands, and Diana, the love of my life, allows, I hereby bestow. Unless, of course, the group votes otherwise.
